Well its your project and its up to you - but leaving out the statement of the higher D sharps is not, according to all my experience, OK. At the very very least it would lead to people questioning them and having to stop and think - and at the worst, people playing it with naturals and wondering why it sounds wrong. The standard accidentals rule should be that the sharp, in this case, needs stating in every octave at which it is required, so the lower D sharp tells us nothing about the octave above (in 35 & 37) wherease the penultimate note in 36, if its supposed to be a sharp, (which I would need to check with the score and/or performances, but it certainly sounds like it needs it to me) in complete need of the accidental.
Btw, it wasn't a close read, just a read, those things jumped up off the page.
And its a really nice piece, not one I've seen transcribed before, but certainly have heard.
